These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Angst? What Angst?: Dana's two mentors were murdered and rendered unto a Broken Pedestal, respectively, and he had to cut himself off from his entire adoptive family, all within the space of a few days. He doesn't seem too broken up about it, on a day-to-day basis.
Walter Steele: Many of the villains in the setting commit murder. Walter Steele betrays his mentor, shoots his mentor's plane out of the sky, ditches his own plane to finish the job in person with a single pistol shot to the head while his mentor is too injured to fight back, leaves the body in a tree, and chops off all of the low-hanging branches so that his mentor's injured wingmen (his former squadron-mates) can't retrieve the rotting corpse and give it a proper burial. Three years later, he taunts the remaining members of the old squadron about the death of their leader. Some villains are pathetic. Some have understandable motivations. Walter Steele is unrepentant cold-blooded evil.
Gorilla Khan: He breaks prisoners' legs to stop them from escaping and as disciplinary action.
Alan Brooks: Despite only having one scene, he's stayed in the players' minds due to him all but raping Sarah.
The Load: Dr. Ivan Aleksandrovich Ekk—Ironeye didn't want his GMPC to overshadow the party, and thus only brought Dr. Ekk when a doctor would be helpful, a Mr. Exposition was needed, or someone needed to inconvenience the party in some fashion. This reached the point that according to Thnikkafan, Dr. Ekk was actually a detriment to the party because he "brought the average down". Since then, Dr. Ekk has been allowed to have one awesome moment in helping Dana and Samson break out of a prison cell by tricking the guards.
The Woobie: Dr. Ivan Aleksandrovich Ekk—his father was killed in the Russian Revolution; his mentor claimed that his mother hung himself; he's been chosen to be a warrior for God when he'd rather be a healer; he lost an archangel's sword; he had to leave his clinic due to Jack's trouble with Al Capone; Angel Rose is trying to control his destiny; he's one of the main targets of Red Russian agents; and he doesn't sleep much due to nightmares, which he sometimes slips into even when he's awake.
